Comagine Health Named the New Independent and Qualified Agent (IQA) for the Behavioral Health Support Program Contract for the State of Oregon

The Oregon Health Authority named Comagine Health as the new Independent and Qualified Agent (IQA) for the behavioral health support program contract. This three-year contract ensures that Oregonians with severe and persistent mental illness are actively involved in directing their treatment through person-centered care planning. Additionally, the work includes connecting individuals with necessary resources and developing a coordinated care approach to improving their overall health. Comagine Health is currently beginning implementation preparation, and will begin direct work with these individuals by July 1, 2020.

Adults in Oregon who have been diagnosed with severe and persistent mental illness will qualify for services through the contract. Comagine Health will ensure that services and supports for these individuals are appropriately delivered by:

  • Performing functional needs assessments

  • Guiding person-centered service planning with active involvement by the individuals themselves
  • Completing medical appropriateness reviews and prior authorizations for service
